Salem Witch Trials Memorial reviews
All gimmicks aside, this is a must see. There are Stone benches with names of each of the wrongfully convicted and executed individuals, along with how and when they were murdered. The wall around it.... more »
NICE to see memorials for the victims since none were actually buried but thrown into the ravine next to gallows hill to rot. Only Rebecca Nurse was buried after her sons and husband rowed up behind..... more »
Wonderful place to learn about our history. I recommend taking an informational tour. When I go I leave tokens for Burroughs, Bishop, contemplate how I am able to practice my religion freely, and yet, they were only perceived as being Witches, died for it. Salem is a great New England sea town. I recommend going in September.
Totally worth the trip to Salem. It was absolutely awesome. Shop owners were very knowledgeable about what they sold. Everyone was pleasant. Such a unique place to visit.
